Franchise Opportunity FAQs

Take a look below at some of the most frequently asked questions and answers about owning a Same Day Grab Bars® home service franchise opportunity.

What type of person are you looking for?

We're looking for those who are, like us, committed to bringing high-quality, affordable service to the members of their community.  We don't have an exact template, but those who work best for themselves in any business are organized, reliable, honest, and have excellent communication skills.  You show up on time and do what you say you will do.

To succeed with a Same Day Grab Bars® franchise, you should be mechanically inclined and good with your hands whether or not you've worked at it professionally, but you don't need experience in construction or building — or installing grab bars.

Do I need to do the installations myself?

Same Day Grab Bars® is the perfect owner-operator franchise, but you don't have to do the work yourself.  However, if you do, you'll keep all the profit, and getting your new business up to speed will be easier and faster.

That's why we recommend you roll up your sleeves and start by learning all you can about your new business on the job before you turn the installations over to employees or add more work vans, but it's up to you.

What type of franchise opportunities do you offer?

We offer single-unit franchise opportunities under a single Franchise Agreement and Area Development rights under an Area Development Agreement to qualified individuals.

How much is the Initial Franchise Fee?

The Initial Franchise Fee for a single Same Day Grab Bars® franchise is $25,000 and includes a large, exclusive territory to operate your business with no competition from other Same Day Grab Bars® franchisees.

Do you offer discounts for multiple franchises?

Yes.  The Initial Franchise Fee for additional Same Day Grab Bars® franchises purchased at the same time is $20,000.

How much is the Area Development Fee?

The Development Fee deposit for each additional franchise business you agree to open is $10,000.  We then credit $12,500 against the Initial Franchise Fee for each new Franchise Business you develop under the Agreement.

Will I be awarded a minimum Exclusive Territory?

Yes.  The Franchise Fee includes a minimum Exclusive Territory of approximately 400,000 in total population and 35,000 Target Market Households occupied by those 65 years and older with an estimated annual income of $30,000 or higher.  

Is there an ongoing Royalty?

Yes.  Beginning the 3rd month after you sign your Franchise Agreement, there's a monthly flat–rate Royalty Fee that increases by a small amount each year.  So, the more you make, the more you keep.

How much is the total initial investment?

The total investment for a single-unit Same Day Grab Bars® Franchise ranges from $49,800 to $69,750 and includes the Initial Franchise Fee.

How long is the Initial Term of the Franchise Agreement?

The Initial Term is ten years from the Franchise Agreement date. If you meet the requirements at the time for renewal, you have the right to renew for an unlimited number of additional ten-year terms.

What type of initial training will I receive?

Your initial training is taught or supervised by an instructor that has installed thousands of grab bars, pioneered exclusive installation techniques, and developed proprietary tools that give you a distinct competitive advantage.  You can view an overview of our in-depth Initial Training and ongoing support under the Training and Support tabs.

How much can I make?

Once you start working with us to learn if a Same Day Grab Bars® business is right for you, we'll give you our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), which contains Item 19 - Financial Performance Representations.  Item 19 includes the annual gross sales, average sales per job, estimated cost of goods sold, and net income for the Same Day Grab Bars® business operated by our Affiliate for the past three years, which can give you a good idea of what you can expect to make.

Do I set my own schedule?

Yes.  Your Same Day Grab Bars® franchise is a home-based business, so there are no definitive opening and closing times.  We ask that you respond to customer inquiries during regular business hours, five days a week, but you may set appointments on any day and time convenient for you and your customers.

Where do I purchase my supplies?

As a Same Day Grab Bar® franchise owner, you will gain purchasing power and name recognition as an authorized Moen® Accessory Distributor, where you will buy your professional quality, lifetime guaranteed grab bars that you will sell to your customers.

We also give you our complete list of Approved and Authorized Vendors to buy your tools and installation supplies.

I'm interested! How do I start?

The first step is to Request Franchise Information or call us at 800-215-7560, and we'll walk you through the process.  We can't guarantee you'll be awarded a franchise, but we promise you will never be under any obligation, and you'll get zero pressure from us to move forward until you are ready.
